Chances are if you're reading Computer Audiophile right now you already know this. But, if you're totally new to the music server world don't shy away just because others are already on the bandwagon. Stereophile's article provides a cursory look at some newer music servers displayed at CES 2008. Once you have read that article I suggest reading the Computer Audiophile series <a href="http://www.computeraudiophile.com/node/98">Music Servers: Canned or Custom</a> for a more detailed look at the current options. Read more for a snippet from the Stereophile article and a link to the complete story.[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]
"Throughout 2006 and much of 2007, we got the feeling at Stereophile that most audiophiles were scoffing at the idea of a music server in their system.
But sometime last year, perceptions changed. Here we are at the 2008 CES and music servers and related products are popping all over the Venetian and at THE Show.
And then there were the surprising online poll results this week.
We asked in our Vote this past week if you are ready for an audiophile music server, and the response and number of comments have been overwhelming. A whopping 32% of you already have a server of some kind set up, and 44% are ready to jump in. We received more votes in this poll than any other in 2007!"
